Steve Parker brings you face to face with the nature's deadliest creatures. They include not only world-famous big killers such as the tiger, polar bear, wolf, eagle and great white shark, but also the most venomous snakes, spiders and scorpions on Earth, as well as lesser-known yet just as lethal hunters - massive but stealthy anacondas, lurking alligators, innocent-looking sea wasps and coneshells and small but fearsome dragonflies and praying mantis. This book combines authoritative text, written in consultation with the Museum's experts, with stunning photography to create the finest book on the world's most fascinating, terrifying and awe-inspiring creatures.
